Prototype car that flies over water unveiled by Kitty Hawk startup

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (KGO) -- A startup backed by Google has been working on a flying car, but the biggest surprise is it's more of a flying boat.

The new all-electric aircraft was created by Kitty Hawk.

The FAA categorizes it as an ultralight plane, so you don't need a pilots license.

Kitty Hawk says people can learn to fly it in minutes.

The one-seat prototype is made for short flights in sparsely populated areas.

It should go on sale by the end of the year, but there's no word yet on pricing.
